Event Details

Rapid Prototyping with Blender and Pepakura  
1 Session, 3 hours
Learn how to turn virtual 3D models into tangible paper models!
This class will give you the basics for taking a pre-existing 3D model
and get it ready for becoming a physical object.  We will use Blender 
to learn to "decimate", which gives 3D models that much sought after
lo-tek aesthetic, and from there take our finished virtual forms into 
Pepakura.  This program will "unfold" our mesh into a flat plane 
complete with tabs and allow us to cut, paste, and fold our way 
to a physical manifestation of a virtual object!
Before attending, download and install the free software from: 
www.blender.org
http://www.tamasoft.co.jp/pepakura-en/ 
If you have previous experience with 3D and have a model 
you would already like to make out of paper, please come with 
that model. Otherwise there will be a compilation of found 3D models
to choose from.  Please bring a laptop with you and install Blender  
prior to arriving.  We9ll be printing your models out on card stock which
will be provided but that said, please bring a glue stick, a pair of 
scissors, an xacto, and a ruler.
